    Call me back when the the two teams are Hot Naked Chicks vs. Even Hotter Naked Chicks. Survivor needs a break.

    Any guesses on who that might be?

    CBS are morons.

    by borisF

    Their race experiment gave them lowest ever Survivor ratings. And their response. Lets do it again. Retards.

    10 californians???

    by jccalhoun

    That's good searching there boys...<br><br>as much as it will never happen, they need to go to a different environment. The tropical island thing is getting really old. It would be nice if they would take a page out of the Survivorman book and put them somewhere where they really would have to work hard to survive. If the people were mostly eliminated by just dropping out of the competition rather than some elimination it might be interesting again.

    Hate to sound like a pig

    by MRJONZ72

    But I really only see one chick I consider HOT! There is one that is perhaps border line. I another that I call cute, maybe 1 more border line cute. But that is it.

    Herc, were you joking with that Jewish tribe business?

    by Lord Bullingdon

    Not sure what you were goin' for there, maybe just being silly, but that could be construed as a teensy-tiny bit on the offensive side. Judaism is after all a religion, not a race, encompassing many different races and nationalities.

    Bring on the Amputee tribe!

    by kinghenryVIII

    And place the show in Alaska or something. The winner gets a 4 wheeled rolling cart thingee, palm pads, and a helmet!

    Could it get any more boooooring?!

    by biggles2_22

    Ah, I remember when this show used to showcase a little slice o' America. Now, it's become MTV. Sad. It could be so much more.

  • Jan. 25, 2007, 2:28 p.m. CST

    Jewish? What about the Flying Spaghetti Monster tribe?

    by SpyGuy

    I think that's what they should do next time...Tribes divided by religion so we can finally settle this issue once and for all. Winner gets to have everyone convert to their religion and a 2007 Hyundai Elantra.

    10 Californians

    by Philvis

    I think CBS is a pretty standup company for picking 10 Californians. Now those 10(whom I am sure are not interested in pursuing a career in entertainment)complete the show, they will already be in CA to get their 15 minutes of fame. I'm sick of these "reality" shows that are just a way for people to get their face on tv.

    Hey, Herc...

    by amrcanpoet

    I find it interesting that you happen to directly link to a non-posted link (ie, clicking on Survivor on the CBS main site still takes you to Season 13, not like you posted) that I sent you this morning; and, you don't happen to give me credit? Hmmm, interesting.

  • Jan. 25, 2007, 3:25 p.m. CST

    Right on, Cali! West Coast!

    by Zarles

    Still watching this show after 13 seasons, and I don't regret a single one. Some have been better, some have been worse, but I still love it. I wish they could figure out a way to make the first half of the season a little more interesting, though. There's always a lag point that ends right around the 4th or 5th boot. Maybe some nekkid nymphomaniac cheerleaders would do the trick... Hmm.

  • Jan. 25, 2007, 3:34 p.m. CST

    Ref, could not access your article

    by jim

    but I was under the impression that they had one or two alternatives in case something like that happened.

    Suvivor 14 Wikipedia Article:

    by Cloud Buster

    "A tenth female contestant, Melissa McNulty, a 28-year-old talent manager from Los Angeles,[4] decided to leave the night before the game had started and because of the timing and lack of alternates, they could not replace her spot on the show,[3] and as a result, Survivor: Fiji will be the first season of Survivor to feature an odd number of contestants (19) and, subsequently, contain a roster unevenly divided between genders."

  • Jan. 25, 2007, 3:56 p.m. CST

    Anyone aware that Fiji is in a coup situation right now

    ??? I lived there for 3 years .. and yep . it has pretty beaches .. if you have the money to go there ... otherwise .. the island sucks

    Survivor would be watchable if...

    by Hamtaro_Hentai

    It was death-row inmates with weapons hidden on the island. Last one alive wins a pardon. Politics on an island is boring.

    Survivor "Occupations"

    by Tonksy

    Why do they always make a big deal about what the contestants do for a living? They're stranded on an island - who gives a fuck what they do for a job?? And isn't Fiji going through a military coup at the moment? When are they ever going to do an International Survivor, with each contestant from a different country? Now that would be more interesting.

    Where's all the OLD BASTARDS?

    by SnapT

    The cool thing about the first SURVIVOR was that they had OLD PEOPLE on it. Now it's just boring young people. WAKE UP, MARK BURNETT! I want a 90-year old Survivor.

    why not a Native American tribe?

    by elenalyxus

    i think that would be kick ass to see if handled correctly. however, i have no doubt the idea would likely be mishandled.

    Who cares?

    by Jor-El23

    If a reality show doesn't get talked about on the internet, is it really on the air? If you stop giving shite like this attention, then maybe the networks will stop making reality TV shows. You want to blame someone for the cancellation for Arrested Development? Blame reality TV.

    The reason for 19

    by jtp8000

    One contestant quit the night before filming was to start. I saw a picture of her, naturally the one who quit was the hot model. Pic of her on TrueDorkTimes.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 10:20 a.m. CST


    by Sammy Jankis

    Seriously, take a few months, or even nine months off between seasons. These things come entirely too close to each other and it makes it difficult to care in the least. There is no build up. You never have time to say, "hmmm, I wonder when Survivor premiers this year?" because the answer is always three or four weeks after the finale.

    Cold Climate Survivor!

    by thevision

    I haven't seen a full Survivor since Season 2 with Colby, Amber and Jeri Manthy. Saw bits of "race war" Survivor which became interesting and I think Yul "the Cool" Korean won. Anyway, put an episode in the Alaskan wilderness, Iceland or Canadian Rockies with double the prize money and I'll definitely watch. All this island shit is same-o, same-o. Put some of these pampered Cali fuckers in Cold Weather and see how they last!

  • Jan. 29, 2007, 5:23 a.m. CST


    by Itchy

    BOOOORING. I've watched every Survivor so far (it's a guilty pleasure) and this one looks the most boring yet. Why ? Because there is not a single attractive chick on either team. What the hell am I going to have to oogle all year ? I had to make due with Parvati last season - which was rough enough - but now ... nothing ? Jesus. I miss the days of Colleen and Amber.

    It looks like the hot chick is not even going to be on Survivor, and she has already posed for FHM-
